Styles of Yoga
All yoga is good yoga, but because people have different needs and preferences we offer different styles. Our classes are non-dogmatic and all our teachers have completed reputable teacher training, so whichever class you take, you will be in good hands. All classes are suitable for all levels.
Hot yoga is a set series of 26 postures (Bikram Yoga) and two breathing exercises practiced in a heated room. The heat helps to create a safe environment wherein muscles can be worked and stretched without the risk of injury. The heat also increases the cardiovascular intensity of the postures and improves detoxification. Hot yoga is a great way to start your yoga practice, but is not limited to beginners; all levels and ages are welcome. Classes are 60 or 90 minutes long. Please make sure that you are well hydrated before class.
Flow yoga links different postures together with a strong emphasis on the breath. Postures are held for a specific amount of time, and the transition from one to another happens through a vinyasa – a sequence of movements derived from Sun Salutations. There is a strong focus on the quality and intention behind the pose, as well as maintaining proper alignment. We offer both heated Flow classes and non-heated Flow classes, at 60, 75 or 90 minutes long.
Meditation is a simple yet profound method to improve the quality of our lives and develop inner peace. Through following very simple, practical instructions we can learn to let go of the causes of our pain and dissatisfaction and to gain the inner peace and clarity we seek. Taught by Colinda Linde, the meditation classes are very easy to understand and apply to our daily lives. The classes are suitable for both beginners and advanced meditation practitioners, and emphasise how to meditate and practice in our Johannesburg urban environment.
